Minister Lacy Jackson, Jr.

Lacy Jackson was born on Friday, December 2, 1949 in Ellerbe, North Carolina. He was one of seven children born to the late Lacy, Sr. and Hester Jackson. He departed this life on Sunday, November 1, 2020.

Raised in Ellerbe, North Carolina, Lacy attended and later graduated from Mineral Spring School in 1968. After high school, he joined the work force and assumed various jobs. To name a few, he was an avid salesperson, educator and entrepreneur until he became a professional yardmaster for CSX Railroad in Hamlet, North Carolina.

In the same year, Lacy was visiting his aunt one day when he became mesmerized by the beauty of the foxy, Annie Saunders. After a short courtship, he married the love of his life in 1969 and from their union was birthed five children. He often referred to Annie as “flesh of my flesh and bone of my bone.”

He cherished the time he spent with his wife and children. He took pride in being involved at his children’s schooling, taking them fishing, teaching them how to drive and spending time with his family. He and Annie celebrated 51 amazing years of marriage on the same day he was called home to be with the Lord.

In addition to being a husband and father, Lacy loved the Lord and the Word of God. He gave his life to God and soon after accepted his call to minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ. On June 24, 2012, he preached his initial sermon and was ordained a Minister of the Gospel at Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church, where Reverend Robert L. Dockery is the pastor. Minister Jackson never missed an opportunity to share the love of Jesus Christ. During dialysis and doctor appointments, he held bible studies, offered prayer and had a word for every patient and doctor he came in contact with. His bold, impactful and passionate demeanor will be sorely missed.

Minister Lacy Jackson is preceded in death by his parents, Lacy Sr. and Hester Jackson; his brother, Clifton Jackson and son, Calvin Watkins.

He leaves to cherish his memories and love to his wife of 51 years, Annie S. Jackson; children, Clifton Saunders, Rockingham, NC, Derriek Jackson (Henrietta), Harrisburg, NC, Sharell McClenton (Reginald, Sr.), Garner, NC, Elder Dario Jackson (Vanya), Columbia, MD, DeMarlin Jackson, Charlotte, NC, & Demery Jackson, Rockingham, NC; five siblings, Ruth Brown (Edward), Pikesville, MD, Naomi Jackson, Winston-Salem, NC, Lula Moore, Pikesville, MD, Alda Ewing (Michael), Candor, NC, Christine Jones (Thaddeus), Pine Bluff, NC; two uncles, Reverend David Dockery (Geraldine), High Point, NC, Reverend Robert L.
